Animal Coffin

Groupwork at the Design Academy Eindhoven with Louise Knoppert and Amanda Ă–sterlin La Mont.

This project was based on a big research about waste and how it could be transformed to a new material. We decided to create a new material by using only natural, biodegradable materials. Our final material is based on the ingredients: cardboard, hair, flour, vinegar, starch and coffee leftover.

With the new material and its properties we designed an animal coffin in three sizes. After burrying your beloved pet in this coffin the material will start to biodegrade and the coffin including the corpse will be nutrient for the soil.
